Took my fiance' up to Baum Lake today to check out the fly-fishing. *We forgot that today was Lincolns' birthday, hence a holiday for everyone, so there were quite a few people fishing there. :'( *We caught a total of 33 fish, and lost another 12-15 before getting them to the boat.

Got on the water at 9:30am, and I caught this rainbow on the first cast...

Caught this hook-jaw a few minutes later...

Went to take a break on shore and found a surprise right at the lake's edge... :o

Fish were rising EVERYWHERE! *Water temp 47 degrees. *Small nymphs, buggers, and midges seemed to be some of the best bets today. *Good luck to all!

I was there February 3rd , and it was about the same, fish are everywhere, I must've caught 40-50 fish in about 4 hours but no size, all smallies, biggest was about 14''.

Baum is about 1 hour East of Redding. Beautiful area, couple lakes up there open year round. Some good stream fishing. Stream fishing opens last weekend in April. I will be up there first weekend in May

Nice fish Paradise Pontoon. It appears I will have to make a trip up there with you some time to work on my flyfishing skills.

That lake sure continues to put out limits. My friend has a place in McCloud and always fishes there with good results.
